Several reviewers consider this film to be very similar to Waking Ned Devine (1998). Both films are set in a small remote village, involve a man winning the lottery and dying of shock with the winning ticket clutched in his hand, two people conspire to take the winnings, the conspiracy expands to involve the whole village, and a single villager attempts to reveal the conspiracy but dies in a car accident. However director Priyadarshan claims it is "totally and absolutely original". See more »
If a dead man wins a lotto ticket, who will the money go to?
This movie is worth watching- that is if you want the time to pass and if you're bored out of you're mind. It was quite humorous, but not very memorable. I think this movie would have been excellent if only it was cut about an hour or so, because it really did drag on.
The characters were brilliantly casted, and the acting was very well rehearsed. But honestly, this movie isn't worth three hours of you're time. It's unique, because the whole plot isn't some sappy love story, but the again it really does DRAG ON.
I'll say that one more time to make myself clear. This movie really does DRAG ON.
Watch this if you're bored out of you're mind, and want to see something humorous, but not "memorable humorous." I mean, after the movie ends, you won't be like "Oh, ha-ha! I remember when so-and-so did that- classic!" You're reaction will more be like "huh. That was not too bad. What's for dinner?"
